Address: Tverskaya str., Moscow, Russia
Moscow's main street, which runs uphill from opposite the north end of Red Square, was originally the main road out of the medieval city running to Tver and Novgorod, later - to Saint Petersburg. Its unique architecture combines medieval side streets and courtyards and 21st Century building projects with the dominant Stalinist neoclassicism.
The capital’s main street is full of people in the daytime but there are always enough space for a curious tourist. Step aside from the crowd, and look around. Each building here is of historic and architectural value, one may gaze at them forever, “reading” the reflection of epochs on the façades. But make sure you visit Tverskaya at night. The illumination web covering the street as if it were a shawl has become a visiting card of Moscow after dark.
